Therapy: It’s Worth It

By Kim Ureno

I’m in therapy.  

My therapy journey started 9 years ago, after my mother died unexpectedly.   

Therapy has helped me through countless struggles, the most prominent being my infertility journey.  

After my twins were born in 2016, I stopped going to therapy and looking back, that was when I needed therapy the most. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was trying to be the mother I wanted to be, while ignoring the elephant in the room— my own childhood trauma.
